Naomi Chi­ang is a bril­liant Ne­vada-based sci­en­tist strug­gling to bring up her autis­tic son, Colt – an equally bril­liant coder who spends most of his time in a vir­tual-re­al­ity world. When Naomi dis­cov­ers a way to make dam­aged limbs re­gen­er­ate them­selves, she thinks she’s help­ing all of hu­man­ity; but the US gov­ern­ment sees mil­i­tary po­ten­tial in her in­ven­tion and is de­ter­mined to stop her shar­ing it with any­one else – forc­ing her and Colt to go on the run from a ter­ri­fy­ing army of drones. This is an ex­cit­ing lit­er­ary thriller with plenty of in­ter­est­ing ideas – though you can’t help won­der­ing if it might work best as a com­puter game.
